A Dove never engages in a

FIGHT, with

A Witty Sage or a Serf. The Deep, or the ocean, washes against every,

LEDGE, and causes

'Tides in a Haven or Bay. A Noose of rope is not as good as a

Lock, to confine a man for

A Debt or a Home Crime. The Night conceals every fish's

FIN, that endeavours to

Hide or Dive for Sea room. Noon is not hot enough to bake a

LOAF, not even

A Hot Noon on the Miami. A Gnome is an imaginary being, that can not

LEAP, or run as fast as an

Athenian Jew or Warrior. Norway has near it a vortex, that will rage and

FOAM, and send a ship Down and Castaway the Hull. The Nile overflowing when the weather is

FAIR, fertilizes the earth, and prevents the Downfall of Nubia. A Niche is sometimes seen in the wall of a

LIGHT-HOUSE, though not often occupied by

A Timid Wren. A Nag would not like to live in

JEDDO, nor be shut up in

A Muddy Watch-house. A Knife is not as good as a

FILE, to enable a prisoner to break out of A Mighty Jail. The Knob of a door is sometimes turned by a

HARRIER, while hunting in the

Domain of a Duke. A Mouse in trying to catch

FISH, would probably take

Many, Few or None. A Meadow during the month of

JUNE, will produce more hay than

Meal or Straw. The Moon should it hit the earth, would make a

HURLY, and produce a chasm that would Out-measure a Ditch. A Mummy should it speak, would have a voice so HARSH, that it would

Move a Siren. A Moor can create a noise, and make one

HARK, or he can fight, and give

Renown to a Mob. A Mill is sometimes carried by water at

LOW TIDE, and often owned by

A Rich Athenian. Mush would not be as handsome a reward for a

SHERIFF, as a present of

A Rough Medal. A Mug of water will not assist us to learn

LATIN, but it will refresh us if we

Droop with Fatigue. A Muff made of a bear-skin, would produce a

FRIGHT, if it should be thrown into a party of Little Women. A Map guided Mr. Stephens to many &

RUIN, while travelling in

Lower Yucatan. Rice is inanimate, and can not

FROWN; and it will vie with the

Lily in Beauty The Road is a place where Musicians play on the

HARP, an instrument that is the subject of A Eulogy or Story. The Rhine has on its banks a plenty of

ROOM, for a carriage or

A Tall Cart-wheel. Rome is now poor, and contains beggars

RARE, who

Live on Bounty The Roar of a bell is often heard under a

Low DOME, that is louder than the

Shouts of a Mummy. A Railway has carriages that run under a

Low DOOR, and go fast enough to

Charm a Wagon. In Russia there is many a time-piece with a

Low DIAL, that keeps time better than a Tea-kettle in Elba. A Rock is often seen in the country of the

Low DUTCH, that defends them from

A King and War thief. A Roof was built over the Capitol of the French

REPUBLIC, to protect from the weather, their valuable Cabinet. A Rope is not as strong as a

Low DIKE, a mound that makes a good road for

A Cab-man. Lace is sometimes used by a

DIRECTOR, and sometimes by

A Cobbler A Lady would probably think more of a

CONSUL, than of

A Gay Bauble. A Lion was never braver than

NAPOLEON, nor never engaged in more

Tough Sorties. The Loom was not much used before the

RESTORATION, and then principally to

Weave Thread. The Lyre affords more amusement to a

LADY WIFE, than would

A Dove or a Tulip. A Lily is more perfect than any specimen of the

* ARTS, and more beautiful than

A Vine or a Rush. The Lash was not much used in the dominions of LOUIS PHILIPPE, who as a Peace-maker, was as

Famous as a Dove. A Lake is not as variable as the

NEW REPUBLIC, that is ruled by Louis NAPOLEON and A Very Few.

The student will find no difficulty in learning the Sovereigns of England, after an examination of the Sovereigns of France, and the preceding Instructions. The second Nomenclature Table, which follows, on page 143, nearly the same plan of Nomenclature Table No. 1. There is, however, this difference. While the Table No. 1 is a simple Table, each word translating to the exact number that it represents, the words in Table No. 2, all have more articulations than are needed to make the correct number. To find the number that each word is intended to represent, in this Table, we must translate the first two artic. ulations only, and let all the other articulations go. For example, we will take the words Swamp and Orator. The first two articulations in Swamp, are se, me, standing for 0, 3, showing the word to be No. 3. The first two articulations in Orator, are re, te, giving 41 as the number of the word. The first nine words in the Table are zero words, or words standing first for a zero or cipher, and then the next articulation represents the number. All the words following the ninth one, have three or more articulations, but only the first two are to be taken. This difference between the two Nomenclature Tables was made, that the learner might be able to tell the words of one from those of the other, and not get them confused. There being kings of the same name in the lines of French and English Sovereigns, two distinct Nomenclature Tables were necessary for learning them.

The Homophonic Analogies for the English Sovereigns are on the same plan as the French, and will be readily un. derstood after an examination of the latter in connection with the preceding Instructions. The formulas for the English Sovereigns differ from the French in having one or two ar. ticulations in each formula after the first fifteen, to represent the number of the Dynasty. It can be remembered that the first fifteen Sovereigns belong to Dynasty No. 1. All the formulas after the first fifteen, translate regularly, first to the date of the reign, the next two articulations for the number of years the reign continued, and all that remain for the number of the Dynasty.

Example Armor in time of war, will protect a

LAZY QUEEN, and guard an

Idle Life or a War Life. In the above formula, the Nomenclature word Armor, shows the Sovereign to be the 43rd., from re, me, the first two articulations. The Homophonic Analogy, LAZY QUEEN, shows the Sovereign to be QUEEN ELIZABETH, and Idle Life or War Life, gives us de, le, le, fe, 1558, for the commencement of the reign, re, le, 45, for the number of years the reign continued, and fe, 8, for the number of the Dynasty. The student must learn in the Table of Sovereigns on pages 144 and 145, that the first Dynasty was the house of Old Saxon Kings, the second Dynasty the Danish Kings, and so on through the eleven Dynasties. The stųdent must commit thoroughly to memory the second Nomen. clature Table, at least as high as 56 or 60. This is indispensable in learning the English Sovereigns. The whole Table, from 1 to 100, can be used in the same manner as the first Table, in learning names, figures, &c. These Nomenclature Tables are very important, being the sources of a large amount of instruction, as well as amusement.

In the formulas for the settlement of the States, on page 153, the last two figures of the date only are given, leaving the century to be supplied by the learner.
